rsync does load and read the file but does not act on it.
If I change the filename rsync complains.
I must be doing something wrong.
I use a laptop. Opensuse 11.2,
rsync > version 3.0.6 protocol version 30.
I created the following to test..
In .. /home/johan/ a dir rysnc-tst. In that 2 dirs.. begin .. end and a
file exclude. Also a script for rsync.
In dir.. begin 4 files named a, b, c, d.
no space minus space d no space enter. Same with other.
Tried various ways. none work.
rsync -av --exclude-from=exclude begin/ end.
All files get copied, every time.
Tried same in ubuntu 9,10. Same.
Kindly please what am I doing wrong.
